An Alpena woman has been arrested for stabbing her boyfriend on two separate occasions.

City Police said the 29 year-old victim was stabbed in December and again in February.  He was taken to the Alpena Regional Medical Center emergency room both times for serious but non life-threatening injuries.

The man told police he did not know who stabbed him but authorities were not convinced and with the help of witnesses their three month investigation led to 24 year-old Alicia Benac. 

Benac was arrested last Wednesday on two counts each of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and felonious assault.

She is currently lodged in the Alpena County Jail on a $20,000 cash or surety bond.
